Stream Floating Points’ Essential Mix

Floating Points is the latest DJ to take control of BBC Radio 1‘s Essential Mix

Introducing himself as ‘Sam Floating Points’ Sam Shepherd offered up an eclectic selection from the get go in this week’s instalment of BBC Radio 1‘s Essential Mix. Beginning with a rare gem from Brazilian folk musician Carlos Walker, the mix takes in obscure cuts like cult French jazz band Cortex’s Chanson D’un Jour D’hiver and ends on a cult disco classic from Taxie.
